      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content.

There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

Blogger HTML posts problem

Recommended Posts

Hello friends! Sorry if I asked the question which already exists, but I couldn't find an exact answer to my problem and also I'm still new, thanks for understanding in advance.

I will try to describe my problem in the best way, with hope that someone can give me the answer that I can't find anywhere.

I have my personal style blog at blogger.com platform > http://fashionsanja.blogspot.rs and I'm average good in codding, but enough for my blogging needs. I have the huge problem with my blog posts, as you can clearly see by visiting it via the link above. In the blogger help forum I got the problem name and temporary solution, but not an completely answer. The problem is that my HTML elements are continuosly "nesting" within one or the other as each blog posts is displayed. I'm not expert enough in that field to solve that alone, I need your help. Just to mention, this temporary solution didn't solve the issue, it just moved the post title a bit down.

I will quote you the reply from google help forum I got:

Your custom Blogger template is pretty much unique due to your custom implementation. The reasons are, at Homepage/index pages, you are allowing your Post HTML elements to display itself inside another Post HTML -- we call it "nesting".

When this happens, it is pretty hard to add & target specific CSS rules as your post HTML elements is continuosly "nesting" within one or the orther as each Posts is displayed.

Below is a temporary workaround until you find (and fix) your Post display "nesting" issues.

Go to Theme > Customize > Advanced > Add CSS ....

.post .post-outer { margin-bottom: 45px; }

Click Apply to Blog


Custom Blogger themes to your extent is not supported in Blogger Help forums due to errors and unknown implementations -- even though you are using any default Blogger themes.

This is because we do not have a clue on how you customized your theme as it shows why it is quite difficult to add CSS to re-style your post elements according to your preference.


I uploaded the picture of the problem (in the attachment), as you can see, the two posts are almost merged, but the first and second aren't. That continues to happend everytime when I try to add a new post. I'm so afraid I harmed the template somehow.


Thanks in advance for your time and trying to help, it would mean a lot to me.

without access to the offending code that's producing the offending code, I think it's a google problem.

I tested, it isn't google's issue for sure. Probably I did something which harmed the template, and since I'm an self-learner in HTML and codding in general, I can't figure out what I did.

Anyway, I tried with this and I reduced the space between the posts, but as you can see now, dates in the second and every post after it are moved down, only in the first post the date is ok, and I can't solve it.

.post-labels { display: block; margin: 50px 0 10px; }
.post-footer-line { margin: 0px 0; }

The most I'm worried about that "nesting" problem described above.

This is really messed up, you have menu html content between closing </head> and <body> tags, you have either removed or misplaced closing </div> tag, you also have misplaced closing </a> tag. You should validate at


to validate your html, at each stage.

Also using 0 on its own is perfectly valid and requires no unit after it, if zeroing height, width etc.

It look as though the first is the problem section, as the other posts are nested as siblings as they should and not nesting into each other, but this could be how the browser interprets how the code should be, because of any misplaced closing elements

Hello guys,

I apologise, Sanja for using your topic to ask my question, but since it is also related to blogging, I hope you won't mind.
You are my female namesake, after all :)

I am writing some guides (as blogs), which I am transferring to my mobile app via feedburner and I would like to change the layout and also add push-to-open features for the website and phone number.
I would like to move the logo completely to the left and place the text next to it. Also, I would like to include the push-to-open feature (for mobile phones) for the phone number and website (and/or an e-mail address, alternatively).

Needless to say that I am new to HTML, however I have used it before, but the coding was not as messed up, as this one.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and once again apologies to you, Sanja.
Best regards,
